OLW EP reviewed by our beloved Milieu
"One Lit Window by The Starry Tides is a 7 track EP of post-rock tracks, with occasional vocals and electronic experimentation. This is their first release as The Starry Tides, and they promise a new EP on archive.org by the end of 2006.
The first track, Seaport Town, will immediately remind post-rock fans of Mogwai or Mono. I suppose you might think the vocals and playfulness of Donât be a Stranger, but that doesnât seem representative of the direction of the other tracks. I find Three Point Turn interesting, because the form the music takes on many levels is reminiscent of electronica. The last three tracks are aesthetically quite similar - short, melancholy and lo-fi.
The Starry Tides keep their tracks succinct, slightly unusual for a post-rock band, but very welcome..." - Alex Young / Milieu / 26 Aug 2006
